EYES OF HITCHCOCK

Eyes of Hitchcock, released by the Criterion Collection, is a short and chilling edit that closely examines Hitchcock’s use of the human eye in his films. The video comes from video essayist Kogonada, known for his explorations of directors’ signature styles and use of video to pinpoint filmmaker tics, like Wes Anderson’s obsession with symmetry.

In less than two minutes, Kogonada exposes Hitchcock’s delirious interest in eyes with a fast cut of representative Hitchcock shots. What we see is an eerie close-up on eyes—Hitchcock’s successful method of instilling fear in his audience. Watch the video and look at some stills below. They really are haunting (via Paste Magazine).

Gustave Caillebotte - The Floor Scrapers (1875-6)

Original on top, later version below

"Despite the effort Caillebotte put into the painting, it was rejected by France’s most prestigious art exhibition, The Salon, in 1875. The depiction of working-class people in their trade, not fully clothed, shocked the jurors and was deemed a ‘vulgar subject matter.’ 

The images of the floor scrapers came to be associated with Degas’s paintings of washerwomen, also presented at the same exhibition and similarly scorned as ‘vulgar’”.

Seoul-based digital artist and sculptor Kyuin Shim explores complex themes through his distorted visions of the human body. With a mastery of constructing sculptures and realistic, digital 3D renderings, the Korean artist creates monochromatic, mannequin-like figures whose forms are transformed in fascinating, sometimes unsettling, ways.

Ernest Pignon-Ernest works constantly on the links between people and places, using drawings made from images of famous people, events or even paintings to “re-inhabit” a place that holds their memory and so engendering reactions with the contemporary inhabitants of that place, or with simple passers by: you and me in other words. His work is rarely shown in galleries. It is truly “street art” in the sense that it uses the street as its wall and its audience. This series of photographs shows examples of the work he did between 1988 and 1995 in Naples, using images from Italian paintings, essentially by Caravaggio. (via)

My name is María, I’m from Colombia - South America. I’m starting to paint, so I don’t have much of a body of work yet. The materials I use are ink over any paper I find.
